Overview

Our fantastic newly-renovated venue is situated on Leazes Park Road, just off Percy Street, in Newcastle city centre. With a large capacity and a late licence, the Hyena Comedy Club is the ideal venue for comedy lovers. Doors open 7.00pm and close at 8.00pm The Hyena is also available for private hire

Our experience at The Hyena wasn't good. The acts weren't funny, it was a "painful" evening with a few forced laughs, when all we needed was a fun relaxing time. There are certainly better places for comedy in Newcastle.

I'm sorry to say that we found this really disappointing. Nearly everyone present was in a hen or stag do, and they heckled the comedians fairly relentlessly. Out of the two comedians we saw, one of them nearly gave up her whole set to interact...More

Came here for my friends birthday and we had an absolutely marvellous time! It was very funny, bar prices were good and the comedians had me and my friend hurting with laughter. Places like this are needed in Newcastle! Will be back again

Not too vulgar and extremely well managed. All the staff were friendly and welcoming. Three acts were varied and highly amusing. Well worth the entrance fee!
